Rating Rockstar, #4: GTA IV

It’s Grand Theft Auto, once again set in Liberty City. The main character is East European, a definite bonus for me.

Why it’s here: Combat is almost perfect. A good mix of vehicles, a gripping storyline and lots of excellent secondary characters. Tons to do, and the in-game internet was a great touch.

Why it’s not higher: Niko is way too broody, for my tastes. The connection to the wars in Yugoslavia is really, really tenuous and never developed that well.
